BACKGROUND:

Pursuant to Part I, Section 6 (e) of the Albemarle County Road Naming and Property Numbering Manual, road name change requests may be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors for approval upon validation of the following:

 

Landowners of more than fifty (50) percent of the parcels served by the road in question have signed a petition in favor of a common road name, and that the proposed road name is otherwise consistent with other road name guidelines (not a duplicate name, is limited to three words, does not exceed sixteen characters and/or spaces, etc.) outlined in the Manual.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 3.1:  Make the County a safe and healthy community in which citizens feel secure to live, work and play.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Request to change the road name of Mountain Top Farm to Montalto Loop Road at the request of the sole landowner (see Attachment A).  The proposed name is a common road name within the meaning of the Manual and is consistent with the Manual’s other road name guidelines referred to above.  The landowner will be responsible for costs associated with new signage.  A map indicating the location of the road is also attached (Attachment B). 

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Approve the new road name as requested and grant staff the authority to coordinate/implement the above referenced change.
